punished for being 50

December 29th, 2010 at 02:00 pm

No wonder people don't like to get older, not only does your body punish you by not working as well and aching more, but the insurance companies punish you too. I got my first health insurance bill for 2011. It increased just because, but adding insult to injury since I'm turning 50 there is another premium jump of a whopping $73/month. At least I can get insurance and this last year definitely taught me the value of having it, even paying more than $5000/year, it's worth it. My new monthly bill is 417.60.

I started watching a documentary from Netflix on my computer yesterday. I didn't have a lot of time so only got the first 20 minutes in. But I was really impressed with the speed and quality of the download. Plus I can go back and pick up right where I left off instead of having to start from the beginning like with a DVD. They sent my first DVD and I'm supposed to get it tomorrow.

My grandma went home today so last night was the last night of playing cards. We played Rook the whole 5 days. Me and mom vs grandma and dad. They won 22 games to our 21 so it was pretty close.

I finished reading my book Sebastian by Anne Bishop. Sci/Fi - very good.

    My kids got me a Roku for Christmas so I can stream from Netflix to my TV. Haven't tried to connect it yet, though. I'm looking forward to getting more mileage out of my Netflix subscription.

    My family is a big time Rook player. We played for quite a few hours last week.
